Seoul and Busan events to showcase cutting-edge engineering solutions and connect leaders across the energy and marine industries
SEOUL, South Korea, August 14, 2014 -- Intergraph®, the leading global provider of engineering software, has announced that its PP&M Global 2014 User Conferences series will visit Busan on 2 September and Seoul on 4 September.
Built on the theme of “Learn, Grow, Connect”, Intergraph PP&M Korea 2014 provides those working on energy and marine projects with a genuine opportunity to connect with industry experts, learn about the latest engineering developments and leverage best practices from other companies.
Intergraph PP&M 2014 features a presentation by experts from Intergraph’s Korean team in conjunction with Leica, who will discuss digitising a large brownfield plant – a hot topic for the Korean energy industry. Also, Intergraph Executive Vice President of PP&M Asia-Pacific Franz Kufner will present an outlook for energy in the region, discussing the drivers and emerging trends, as well as customer success stories. Intergraph technical specialists will address issues such as the future of enterprise information management and how technical solutions can be implemented to integrate yard operations.
“This is a critical time for the Korean energy and marine industries, and our conferences will provide us with the opportunity to discuss the emerging trends that we expect to be hot buttons in the coming months and years, such as the application of cloud technologies and brownfield modernisation,” said Kufner. “We look forward to connecting with our customers and other industry leaders in South Korea.”
More than 2,000 delegates from Asia-Pacific are expected to attend the conference series, which has already visited Japan, Thailand and China and will arrive in Australia later this month. After South Korea, it will continue to Indonesia and Malaysia, before heading to destinations in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The conferences are sponsored by Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, which has more than 30 years’ experience in providing local expertise and services to support engineering, procurement and construction companies and owner-operators executing projects and operating facilities in Asia-Pacific, delivering enhanced safety, quality, interoperability and productivity.
